RE: Hostetler Lancair ES Build with retracts.

How do you like Hostetler plans?

I've got a couple projects in mind, either his Cessna 170 or Cessna 182. I want to scratch build and cut my own parts but I've seen his plans,...

RE: west systems on koverall

It would probably work, I have no experience but it makes sense.

I've covered 3 airplanes in koverall (1 sheeting wing) and I've always used nitrate dope, from start to finish. I use it to hold...

RE: Top Flite GS P-47 sports scale; diary of a build

Don't worry about the G-10 not being strong enough, it is MORE than enough :D

I saw a guy with a 120" wingspan hellcat weighing 75 pounds using the same thickness G-10 for his aileron hinges.

RE: How should hinge points be setup?

I've done both and the second option is more scale like if you have ever looked at a full scale airplane. If you go with the first method an indentation will be needed because the hinge is bigger at...

RE: Top Flite GS P-47 sports scale; diary of a build

I'll have to agree with you some of Top Flites methods of doing things can be a bit confusing or just not make sense at all. I wish kit companies would stick to normal straight forward building,...

RE: New 12' Telemaster

I have not built the 12' foot version but have built the smaller one and they are great kits, worth the cost. Nothing flies like a telemaster, they have been around for decades. The 12' version with...

RE: Top Flite GS P-47 sports scale; diary of a build

I agree on the tailwheel but I like the sierra unit because on the full scale (P-51 for sure, not sure on the P-47) the tailwheel actually does retract forward, so I guess its just more of trying to...

I would run retracts but it depends on your flying skill and building skill.
